Discover four of America’s best-loved national parks from wherever you are in the world, and win your chance to see them in real life, too. TrekAmerica have launched an incredible new competition giving away a place on their 21 day Westerner 3 road trip as part of their fab new #TrekAmerica360 campaign. Read on for details of how you could win…
Recently, I headed to a USA-themed party in London with TrekAmerica to celebrate the launch of their incredible new 360 videos. A night of yummy cocktails, great music, and the chance to get lost in our own little virtual reality world! It was so much fun, and really cool to be able to explore some parts of America that I’ve not been able to visit yet.
#TrekAmerica360 is a series of four new virtual reality videos that take you inside the Grand Canyon, to the top of Angels Landing in Zion, through Monument Valley on a Navajo led jeep ride, and to some of the most incredible viewpoints in Yosemite. Operating in 360 degrees, the videos offer a really cool and totally immersive look inside all four parks. Better still, watching them gives you the chance to win a spot on the super-popular Westerner 3 road trip. That’s a three week trip in the “Wild West”, including flights from the UK. Interested?

Explore Yosemite with TrekAmerica
My personal favourite was the Yosemite video, because that park has been on my travel wish-list for years. I’ve seen hundreds of pictures and videos of Yosemite before, but nothing has ever captured the scale of the place – or those Giant Sequoias – quite as well as this. The 360 video alone is totally immersive, but if you have a Google cardboard or a VR headset then you’ll be able to see the whole thing in virtual reality too!
If you don’t have a headset, you can still explore the full 360 degree video. Just make it full screen and drag left, right, up and down to explore.
Win an Adventure with TrekAmerica
There are four videos in total, exploring some of the most amazing national parks in the US: the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Zion, and Monument Valley. Check out TrekAmerica goes 360 to see them all. Once you’ve watched them, all you have to do is fill in a short, 3 question survey to be in with a chance of winning an epic 21 day adventure in the USA.
The trip up for grabs is the Westerner 3 – a 21 day, 20 night tour of western USA taking in all four of the above national parks. The prize includes flights from the UK as well as three weeks of pure awesomeness. Definitely worth an entry!
Highlights of the Wild West Road Trip
Just in case you’re not totally convinced you want a free 21 day trip through the USA, here are a few wanderlust-inducing photos to inspire you. Enjoy…
Explore the wilderness at Yosemite National Park. Giant Seqouia trees, staggering granite peaks, and enormous waterfalls, plus all kinds of wildlife. An adventure of epic proportions.
Hike up to Angels Landing in Zion National Park for more amazing views of an entirely different nature. Here it’s all rust-red sandstone rock walls and strikingly deep canyons – well worth the intense hike to the top!
Dive into the Desert Southwest in Arizona and visit the iconic Monument Valley on a Navajo jeep tour. This is the real “wild west” now: red sand desert and those iconic sandstone towers.
And of course, no trip to western USA is complete without a Grand Canyon experience – surely one of the most iconic sites in America. It’s one of the deepest canyons in the world and probably the best known – and it’s definitely unmissable.
So what are you waiting for? Watch the videos and complete that survey now to be in with a chance to win!
